How To Book a Motivational Speaker

Day 1 Of Your Requested Course

4 Easy Tips for Choosing the Right Keynote Speaker

1. Book a speaker with a proven track record. Your

speaker should have a LONG list of happy clients. Ask

your prospective speaker to provide a list of RECENT


One way to assure that you’ve got a real pro is to

book a CSP. Certified Speaking Professionals

are the meeting planners mark of excellence… and

booking a CSP can be like money in the bank.

2. If humor is important to you when selecting

a speaker (and it should be!), make sure your

speaker is ACTUALLY funny — and very clean. The

last thing you want is a keynote speaker who uses humor

that offends people in your group. Book a speaker

who understand and have tons of experience with

humor in the professional and corporate world.

How does Brad feel about crystal clean humor?

3. Learn more about your speakers RECENT clients. Make

sure that your speaker has hundreds of references. Check

for a long list of past clients.

Check references (and make sure that the references are recent.)

And check with your potential speakers’ past clients to

make sure that your speaker is as professional OFF the

platform as he is ON the platform.

4. It’s VERY important to ask your potential keynote speaker a ton of

questions. Why should I book YOU? How do I know

you’ll deliver? Are you easy to work with? Can

you tailor your message to my group? You say you

are an expert… how do I know for sure? How do

you approach humor? How will my group feel after

they meet you?

Don’t stop asking questions until you know you have the

right person.

Not only will the answers to these questions help you pick the

right speaker, but having a dialogue with the speaker will help you

get a “feel” for your speaker. After all, if your speaker sounds

horrible on the phone, how will he sound in front of your group?

Thanks! But before you do, think about this: what if
the next newsletter has the winning lotto numbers, and
every reader wins… but you? Hey, it could happen.
So don’t be too hasty.


First of all, I hate Spam…
(unless it’s fried). I never rent, trade or sell my
email list to anyone for any reason whatsoever. Not
even if they give me $1 Million. (If they give
me $3 Million, you might be in trouble, but

seriously, what are the chances?) You’ll never
get an unsolicited email from a stranger

as a result of joining this list. Not that
I’m not pretty strange, but… well… you get the idea.


Finally, some readers love to find typos, grammar errors and other sundry goofs. I occasionally leave them in just to make those people happy. So if you found some… Yippee! It’s you’re lucky day.

If you’re still reading this far down, you REALLY need to find a hobby. It’s over! All done.

Seriously dude. It’s time to get back to work. Don’t you have some email to return or something?

Ok, now you’re just pushing it. You need some serious help with time management. Move on baby! This thing is over!

Since you’re still here, here’s a video of a flash mob performance in Seattle. I love it for two reasons. One, the energy is undeniable. I’d love to be part of one, and I’d love to witness one. Second, what killer marketing for the TV show. Hire some dancers, and let YouTube have it’s way. I wish I had thought of it.

You must be craving more. Why are you here? I bet you have something that you SHOULD be doing but don’t want to. Clean your desk. Get coffee. Call your mom.

There has to be a better way to procrastinate than this!
